I was recently contacted by a descendant of Carrie (Kanistanaux) Horton, through Carrie’s daughter Mary. This descendant shared a scan of both sides of a post card with an image of Dr. Lee-o-netto on it. It appears to be a professional calling-card or business card of some sort.
I decided to try to learn more about this post card and share what I learned.
I found several good online resources that were very helpful.

My post today will cover Gertrude Fowler, who cared for Lee-o-netto in the last few years of her life. She received Lee-o-netto’s property in Allegany for $1 just weeks before Lee-o-netto’s death.
This suggests a number of possibilities such as
- Lee-o-netto was extremely fond of Gertrude Fowler
- Lee-o-netto owed Gertrude a great debt of some kind
- Gertrude took advantage of the elderly Lee-o-netto
- Gertrude was related
